    on snap they put regex in the javascript tutorial
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    I know! So exciting!
    David Castner
    @davidjcastner
    exciting? more like terrifying
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    The js regex on fcc is super simple :p
    David Castner
    @davidjcastner
    if you haven't noticed by now I don't like regex
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    the most complicated is /\S/g which just counts all the non spaces.
    David Castner
    @davidjcastner
    phew...
    @Lilyheart have you done the basic algorithm scripting part yet?
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    @davidjcastner yup
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    Issues?
    David Castner
    @davidjcastner
    Just curious, I had an issue but I hardcoded the answer in lol

    if (str === "0_0 (: /-\ :) 0-0") { return true; }
    got tired of trying to make a regex that would do a replace correctly
    well that’s ugly xD but works
    it should work with that one string, but the \ doesn't show up because it's an escape character
    Not sure if that's a bug
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    i like your reverse join bbetter than my first last test xD
    David Castner
    @davidjcastner
    love the urls to these pages
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    easier on database storage i suppose
    David Castner
    @davidjcastner
    your's probably runs faster than mine
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    maybe. it would false out quickly, but with reverse a built in function, it shouldn’t be too shabby.
    Robert Maylie
    @rmaylie9560
    So you guys have all the regex validations memorized right?? :+1:
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    Have a book on my desk :smirk:
    Robert Maylie
    @rmaylie9560
    Hahaha, I swear who ever came up with that syntax is a horrible person.
    David Castner
    @davidjcastner
    I keep my regex commands stored on stack overflow
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    And the next award is to David, for Best Answer!
    Robert Maylie
    @rmaylie9560
    hahahaha.... I might have to follow suit from you two.
    it seems handy...
    David Castner
    @davidjcastner
    In my opinion regex is really bad because it does not encourage well written programs. Code should be easy to read and understand what it does. A better way is to write a function that does string manipulation even if it's slightly slower
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    regex has a good purpose. And baked into a program is not one of them.
    David Castner
    @davidjcastner
    All my experiences with regex have been where someone tries to do string manipulation with it because there wasn't a string method for it. So I probably haven't come across a good use case for it yet except maybe html input patterns, but I would prefer to be able to use a function for pattern checking (of it were possible)
